Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

My '97 Jetta 1.8L came without its "Service Manual" which is where VW apparently chooses to publish the maintenance schedule. When it was available from the dealer, it cost $4.95, so it can't be big. Do you know where I can find one, new or used? Or, where I can find the mileage matrix it contains that would tell me when to change oils, replace belts, etc.?

I don't know where you can find one I searched but could not find one. Oil changes ever 3000 miles. Spark plugs and air filters every 30,000 miles, Timing belt every 100,000 miles. Serpentine belt check for crackes on the groved side at every oil change, if any sign of wear change. Top off all fluids when oil changes are done.

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.


Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

I cannot get a manuel for a vr6


Bentley Publishing is the ONLY place that publishes a Repair Manual for the VR6 Engines. I called them about the manual, the book is about $70. and the CDRom is about $99. The one I checked on was for my 1998 VW Jetta VR6, the manual they are sending me goes from 1993 to 1999 and has 4 and 6 cylinders!
